We walked from the Rendevous B&B, just a couple of blocks away. The filet mignon steak was tender but tasteless. The dinner salads were very good. I am sure there are much better dining options in Palm Springs.

The food is so good! Our Waiter was fantastic & helpful in guiding me through what I could eat (I'm gluten free). Both my hubby and I had more food than we could eat.

We had breakfast here, and loved it! We enjoyed the California Benedict and the Huevos Rancheros. Both were delicious and ample, and came with a choice of sides (get the beans and rice!). Excellent service. Lots of parking on-site. A gem in the Uptown area!

We were here on holiday from England, staying just up the road. Interested to try Rick's because my father was Cuban so we walked over. We were given a warm welcome. The atmosphere here is very different to what we are used to in England...More

A good diner type restruant. Food was good and prices great. A lot of locals eat here. They also own Ricks restruant and bakery a few blocks away which is also worth trying for breakfast.
